BM Bibi Flamenco 60KK
This is my second attempt at Bibi Flamenco, having it prior in 60K. That one ran large in the cup, so I was banking on that when ordering the 60KK, and luckily it remained consistent. This model is black lace over red base, but this particular one has a brighter red base than my prior Flamenco. The cups are in 4 sections, two lower with one seam and a stretch lace upper section plus the outer wedge area that connects the straps to the cups.
Now for measurements!
All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the ... body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band measurements for the same reason.
The band measures 22” and stretches to a max of 27.5”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops.
Cup Depth as measured by:
1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
This measurement is: 13”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
This measurement is: 16.5”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The cup width is 6” and 10.5” tall, with a wing of 4.5” tall and the gore being 0.55” wide and 4” high.
As for fit,
The gore sits 1.5 fingers off my sternum, which is about average for me, and the cups fit nicely with the perfect amount of upper lace tension to hug the breast without quadding. The band, like all in this set, is comfortable on the tightest hook-set. Good fit, so I’m happy!
